HOW TO DRESS WELL
Signs to Weird World, shares first song from new LP “Total Loss”, due this autumn Download ‘Ocean Floor For Everything’ below:
How To Dress Well is the stage name of songwriter and producer Tom Krell. Krell’s burgeoning career began in 2009 when, having just moved from Brooklyn to Berlin, his songs began to emerge online via a hugely prolific string of free digital EPs posted in anonymity on his blog. Combining a gorgeous falsetto with fractured R&B-influenced beats, an instinctive ear for subtly devastating melody and elements of noise, sound collage and avant-garde composition, Krell’s debut album Love Remains offered an equally beautiful and troubling window into a startlingly realised artistic imagination.
Since Love Remains, Krell has toured the world, recorded with an orchestra (the Just Once EP, with proceeds going to raise awareness about mental illness) and, always prolific, written and recorded a lot of new music – all whilst continuing work on a philosophy doctorate.
Krell’s new album Total Loss will see release through Weird World in the autumn of 2012 and includes the wonderful “Ocean Floor For Everything” which can be downloaded here.
